Basketball: Defense carries Markesan past Oaks

By

Markesan 45, Oakfield 32

The visiting Hornets played lights out defense after the first quarter to earn the Trailways road win.

Andrew Gibbons led Markesan’s balanced scoring with 11 points, while Oakfield’s Taylor Schaefer (14) and Sam Ritger (13) combined for 27 of their team’s total points.

Markesan coach Mark Neagle said Adam Brown did a “phenomenal job” on Oakfield guard Justin Holz.

“[Oakfield’s] record’s pretty deceptive,” Neagle said. “They’re well coached and do some really nice things. It was good win for us on the road.”
